Packing List for Seattle and CTYI

Hey there. So, on Monday (i.e. two days from now) I'll be on a plane to Seattle for my all-expenses-paid trip sponsored by Intellectual Ventures. I'll be leaving Seattle on Sunday the 12th but will arrive back in Dublin on Monday morning due to timezone differences - about 3 hours after CTYI starts. This means I have no time to go home and bring a different set of clothes, so I now have to pack for a week in Seattle and 3 weeks in Dublin together. Here's my list. This doesn't include Mam's stuff - mostly.

  • Headphones
  • Copy for Seattle
  • Notebook for CTYI lectures
  • Messages/Autograph notebook for CTYI (bring last year’s)

  • Pens (3)
  • Books (2)
  • Passports (both)
  • Tickets (to arrive shortly – hopefully)
  • Details of hotel etc.
  • Contacts (probably won’t wear in Seattle – might wear at CTYI discos)
  • Money in USD for Seattle
  • Money in Euro for CTYI – I need to find my purse
  • Towels (2)
  • Toothbrush
  • Hairbrush
  • Ponies (as many as I can find or buy there)
  • Suncream (if I can find it)
  • Swimsuit

  • Underwear
  • Socks
  • Skin-coloured tights (3) I’ve started experiencing hayfever symptoms this summer, I really hope they don’t get bad in Seattle/CTYI because I don’t have anti-histamines.
  • Adaptor
  • Shampoo (they might have this in the hotel)
  • Dresses 

  • Labcoat (This might be in Dad’s … oh dear. I only need it in a week for CTYI anyway)
  • Boots
  • Pomps 
  • Heels
  • Dubes/Runners

I can't find my trusty boots, this is so distressing. 
  • Jackets (denim, leather, cotton shirt)
  • Ukulele
  • Tracksuit pants
  •  Jeans (2)
  • Cargo pants
  • Hoodies (2)
  • T-shirts (6)
  • iPad
  • iPad charger

So that's my list. I'm probably forgetting things. I'm going to spend today packing  

Update: Packing is exhausting and I hate it. I don't even know what will fit inside the 3-bag weight limit  because how the hell am I supposed to weigh something at home? I have 13 out of the thirty-something now.

Update: I only have a few things left to pack now - socks, hoodies, underwear, adaptor, books. I'm leaving my iPad until the morning of, obviously. 

Tell me if I'm forgetting anything. Toodles.
